Margaret's favorite sports team
"Being born and raised in the Chicago suburbs, I'm a diehard Bears fan. I started visiting Columbus in 2019 and couldn't help but become a Buckeyes fan. I was very fortunate to have had the opportunity to see Justin Fields' athleticism at the Shoe for two seasons before he made his NFL debut with the Bears in 2021!"

Little-known fact
"For my 40th birthday, I taught myself to drive a motorcycle and I've been riding for more than 10 years. When the weather's nice I love doing all my travel (even grocery shopping!) on my Harley Davidson Heritage Softail."
